A garage fire on Saturday morning eventually led to the discovery of a marijuana grow-op.
Winnipeg firefighters were called to the 500 block of Home Street for a fire in a detached garage around 6 a.m. Flames spread to the house and to the homes on both sides.
The fire was extinguished and no one was injured.
Police discovered a marijuana grow-op in one of the houses and executed a search warrant.
A total of 591 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $661,920 were seized, along with $12,000 worth of grow-op equipment.
No arrests have been made and police continue to investigate.
